Editor's note: This is part of an ongoing series on opioid overdoses in the Northland.
If you witness someone overdosing, call 911. Even with successful Narcan use, overdose victims need immediate medical care.
Minnesota's Good Samaritan Law protects those who call in an overdose, and those who are overdosing, from criminal prosecution.
The Duluth Police Department has a non-emergency opioid hotline: 218-730-4009
For help with drug addiction, there are a number of local and national resources to help get referred to treatment.
